Haute-fly has much admiration for Dame Viv. To us she is not only the Queen of style and punk but contemporarily the Queen of ethical cool. She preens her red beehive and lulls us all with her Derbyshire drawl, " choose well... wear a towel or your boyfriend's boxershorts, it's all about improvising." The SS11 collection revealed the archetypal VW cut, with face paint streaks to provide spotlight and a theatrical theme. From culottes to high-waisted tailoring and gingham playsuits; it was effortless and eccentric rolled all into one. Dame, you have done it once again. dayum.
